Ronald Ussery?? Where's he at? You got J.J. Sabatine, Notre Dame insted? WOW.


I was at the Servite vs Alemany game and to me Adams is one of the best all around players I have seen in a few years. That guy is very impressive and is a threat throwing or running. Many of us had nothing but good things to say about Adams and his play. If there is a better all around quarterback than Adams I haven't seen him this season.

Well how good of a baseball player is Vernon Adams????

Vernon Wells was a good player for the Blue Jays, but Vernon Adams is a better QB! :)
No worries...


It was actually an honest mistake, congrats to Vernon Adams...

Sorry, I am a big baseball fan, it was a Freudian slip.

Magnus - The Head Coaches of the Serra League vote for these awards. The totality of the season and not just one play factor in. There is a level of "understanding and negotiation" between the coaches that play a major factor as well. Congrats to Vernon Adams and Alemany on a great year.

Congrats to all of the Alemany players...especially VERNON ADAMS.
McLovin, you are a funny guy. Too bad Crespi didn't have the players or the year that Alemany had!


Congratulations to the Alemany Indians' fine player Vernon Wells for this stellar accomplishment.

JJ Sabatine from Notre Dame was first team all defense?

He was the player for ND who has been mocked across the country for running in circles on Crespi's "miracle" game ending play -- he had at least two or three chances to tackle the ballcarrier -- instead, he ran around and danced in circles like the "have you seen my baseball" guy from There's Something About Mary.

Who votes for this stuff???
